Northland Outdoors Forecast: Quieter weekend after Winter Storm

The winter storm will continue to push through the region Friday into Friday night leaving some areas with heavier snow.

The winter storm will bring rain, freezing rain, and snow to the region Friday. Winds will be blustery as well as this system passes through. Check out the breakdown of this storm with Futurecast precipitation along with Futurecast's wind forecast throughout the weekend with the video above.

Friday's weather for the region.

The low pressure system will continue to drop heavy snow over the southern half of Minnesota and parts of Wisconsin Friday night. This winter storm does appear to be out of the area for most by the time we wake on Saturday morning. Some places in eastern SD could end up with upwards of 10" while Minnesota could see a large swath of 2-6" with some areas picking up even more.

We'll wake cool, but not as cold as some of our other mornings this last week. Temperatures Saturday morning will range from 20s to some 30s and even some teens. I'm seeing the clouds decrease behind this winter storm leaving us with some sunshine to kick off the day Saturday.

Expect a quieter day Saturday behind the winter storm. Highs will stay cool, but we'll get to melting some of the snow - especially those who had bare ground before this storm passed through. Saturday may stay a little breezy throughout the day as well.

Sunday will feature a wide range of temperatures. Some in southern South Dakota through Southern Minnesota and Wisconsin will peak in the mid-50s! The rest will be a little warmer than recently, but most of the heat will go into melting the snow pack in place.

I grew up in Minnesota and my love of the outdoors lead me on a path to becoming in meteorologist. I got my Bachelor of Science in meteorology at St. Cloud State University. I started out my career as a TV meteorologist in Bismarck at KX News in 2010. I left Bismarck for Fargo in the fall of 2015 where I've been since working for WDAY as well as The Forum.
